CavWho would have thought anything good would ever come out of Arkansas? And yet here it is – the world’s best seasoning combination: Cavender’s All Purpose Greek Seasoning.

The Mister was in Florida and tasted this on a salad that was served to him. When he complimented the flavor, his host gave him a shaker to take back home. On the back was a phone number and a P.O. box number in Arkansas, so we called up and then sent a check to the company address for 6 containers.

Since then, we’ve been reordering on a regular basis. I hear they are in some superstores now, but I’ve never seen it around here. If you see it, pick it up for yourself because it is unequivocally  the very best tasting  seasoning mix that I know.

It’s a mix of spices, herbs and some yummy MSG (does not contain lavender flowers). We use most of our stash on salads: oil, lime juice, Cavender’s and some extra dried oregano. It goes equally well on any vegetable, in dips and sauces, on meats and eggs. The website where you can order some also has some interesting  recipes, including this one:

Spike’s Famous Biscuits

* 4 cups Bisquick
* 1 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tbsp. Cavender’s Greek Seasoning

* 1 can of beer

Consistency of dough depends on beer quantity. If too thin, add 1/2 cup more of Bisquick. Roll out dough and cut into bisquit rounds and bake at high temperature.

We put in a bit more seasoning and some extra dried oregano. It makes one tasty biscuit and stands up to any hearty stew or soup.

Cavender’s All Purpose Greek Seasoning – get some. You won’t be sorry.
